MapJam is an interesting collaboration tool for anyone, the novice to the developer. The idea here is essentially this, MapJam is a map publishing platform that allows businesses, organizations, and people to create useful, personalized maps that are easy to share. Account creation is fast and simple (just connect via a social network) then create your own map collection to share. I created the map below in less than a minute, and sharing is a breeze! Easily add descriptions, custom elements like photos and vide, then embed or share with just a click… an idea way to share a static or interactive map via a blog, newsletter or ?? – well done!

There’s no arguing that location technology is powerful, particularly when you add location to a cool mobile app that delivers awesome promotions, specials, and even free stuff nearby. Another new kid on the block just launched this week in the Boston area – enter GoPapaya. The app serves to connect restaurants with potential customers by notifying them about open tables, specials and the like. According to the service, the live feed presents an array of nearby restaurants that are currently offering promotions from 10% – 75%

Let me share with you a little bit of coolness under the topic of “coming soon”… this for those of you that are planning on hitting the annual ESRIUC in San Diego this June (yes June and not July like you might be used to!). Thanks to the Echosec crew (an Esri small business startup program business) here in town for sharing with me a very slick, “coming soon” bit of functionality that really rocks! I can’t divulge everything but this example map produced very quickly (like in seconds in total) gives a look at some speedy analysis (a heat map in this case) that was run on social media activity taking place around the Fort McMurray, Alberta town that is currently under siege by a wildfire – Note: if interested, the Canadian Government is currently matching all Red Cross donations!
Sharing photos via Flickr is an awesome way to archive and share photos, I’ve been using the service almost since Day 1. The now free service provides a great way to easily upload photos over mobile while it is also to have a backup of your photos hosted in the cloud. Flickr makes it a little tricky to locate your feed, however, it really is there!
